Protecting and preserving our Mother nature is more important now than ever. With the serious climate change happening around the world, it is imperative that every single individual take a step forward to make a change.

We do not only embark on initiatives towards cleaning and preserving our environment, but also call upon others to do the same through various awareness programmes. We are fully committed to building a safe, conducive and more sustainable tomorrow for our future generations.

Inspirasi Kawa - Gotong-royong at Hartalega trail

To enhance environmental literacy among local youth in the communities near our operations, such as Kuala Selangor, Ijok and Bestari Jaya, Yayasan Hartalega continued to collaborate with social enterprise Inspirasi KAWA for the third consecutive year, encouraging youth participation in biodiversity conservation efforts. This year, our focus was on monitoring water quality in Bestari Jaya, adopting the Place-Based Citizen Science (PBCS) approach.

Through this, we aim to design a PBCS programme based on the Eco-Heart Index as a citizen science tool to maintain water quality levels, where communities including youth will be able to participate in field collection of water quality monitoring data. Moving forward, the project will include water preservation and conservation programme

River cleaning and watering nurseries

We collaborated with Inspirasi Kawa to conduct a river cleaning and watering nursery at Firefly Jetty Kg Kuantan in Kuala Selangor. Over 30 Hartanians collected a total of 260kg of waste, consisting of plastic bottles, food packaging, broken chairs, polystyrene, and more. We also planted over 100 bags of palm trees as well.

While we continue our effort towards keeping a cleaner environment, we want to urge everyone to play your part in preserving the environment. It can be as simple as picking up rubbish, recycling your bottles, or even reducing waste.
